    I can't help you, but I'll be watching this thread closely. That's the way I intend to go. (Triffid Nurseries has them also - I seem to recall B&T was kinda steep)
    cheers,

    Question

    Check out Andrew Wilkinson's Germination Guide from Triffidnurseries.com. I use that guide to germinate all my Petiolaris Complex Drosera.

    Be sure to wash the medium used for sowing, especially if it is peat. Otherwise, you might a layer of slime mold etc. that will make germination very difficult...

    Oh yes, a must! With petiolaris seeds, I don't mess around. I rinse the peat several times with RO water, then microwave it (while wet of course). Slime mold takes a loooong time to make its presence known this way

    Out of curiosity, about how many seeds did you get per pack?

    I got some D. derbyensis seed from B-and-T. The seeds were too small to say how many. Prob somewhere around 20? I had one plant come up. Still, that's all I really wanted.

    Hi,
    I think there where about 20 seeds also, out of about 40 seeds i planted lanata, derbyensis, and paradoxa, only one sprouted, that was a D.derbyensis. There all in the same container under the same conditions. It's been 3 months now?
